"Equate has proven to be
both engaging and challenging for all players involved in the
game, no matter what level of math skills they have. Our first
game was played with players ranging from ages 10 to adult.
Everyone became very serious, as they thought out their next
move. It was quite intense, but also enjoyed. I was amazed yet
impressed, to see how serious it was taken from the first moment

"Equate is a truly educational game (eek!), but it's a lot
of fun anyway... With certain tiles eliminated, Equate becomes a painless, indeed
enjoyable, math tutor for children. My wife, a retired elementary-school math teacher,
recommends it for fourth grade and up, and I recommend it not only for grown-up
mathophiles but also for mathophobes and other innumerates."

this serious deficit... Designed by an educator who saw the need for developing more
interesting math products, Equate is not about speed but about thinking. A fun way to test
your child's ability to understand math and utilize algebraic reasoning."
